Pantsed, and the Hazards of Weight Loss


So I managed to lose twenty pounds,

For which gratitude surely abounds,

but there were side effects

like old Turkey neck,

and others not quite as profound.


Now all my pants are quite droopy,

Like some rapper star or her fly groupie.

Since they keep catching

 I no longer look fetching

with my pants past my waist like Dogg Snoopy.


As a matter of fact just today,

By my trousers, I again was betrayed

When they caught on my seat

and fell to my feet.

They made quite a showy display.


So I rapidly yanked them up high,

again they  refused to comply.

When the stitching gave way,

My butt was hence on display.

I do hope my client turned a blind eye.

    that’s quite a story
    not one bit gory
    it show how fine
    you are with rhyme
    not to mention
    the clear attention
    of dropping pants
    i hope you danced
    well done, zoe

    I’ll think of a better comment as soon as I stop laughing. 😀


  10. This little ditty was every bit as entertaining as the event inspiring it… of course we are laughing WITH you, or so it is PC to say! Never a dull moment in Zoe’s life, and I do hope that if there was a client in your office at the time his/her day was substantially brightened by this brief lapse of covering! I’m still thinking rainbow suspenders is the answer! 🙂

    Wow, is that true? Did that really happen? Well, you know what? I bet it made your client more comfortable because you showed a little vulnerability.
    All Brian’s pants are too big, too. He takes Adderall and doesn’t eat enough, and he’s shrunk quite a bit.

      Yeah, but it didnt happen with a client … I did walk around all day with a “Hi my name is” sticker holding the ass of my pants together. I was too close to time to cancel and couldnt find anything to hold my pants together!

    Zoe, this made me laugh out loud. Thank you!

    What a jaunty little poem you made of a wardrobe disaster! Time for smaller pants, perhaps?
